9781554981670: The Tweedles Go Electric

Meet the Tweedles: Papa, Mama, daughter Frances and her brother, Francis. It’s the dawn of a new century—the twentieth century!—and the Tweedles have decided to buy a car. But no gas-guzzler for this modern family. Only an electric car will do for them. Frances is the only member of her eccentric family who is not delighted when Papa decides they need an electric car. She would rather read a book. Frances knows that cars go fast, which can only lead to trouble. She is even less impressed when the family takes possession of the car and faces ridicule from more conventional citizens with their noisy, dirty, gas-fueled machines. But when Mr. Hamm is unable to get to the hospital because his car has run out of gas, Frances saves the day—and falls in love with automobile travel at the same time. With humorous allusions to the twenty-first century—which is better? Gas or electric?—The Tweedles Go Electric is a charming picture book about an odd and endearing family and their attempts to keep up with the times.

How do they run? Are they safe?” asks Mama, nervously.
On a battery,” replies Papa, proudly. They are safe as houses.”

Not too fast, Papa,” warns Mama. Remember Frances’s nose.”
Which one?” asks Papa.
She only has the one nose, dear,” replies Mama.
I meant which Frances,” says Papa. He swerves to avoid a horse and cart.
